I know that NYMC, Creighton, UT, and Loyola at least look at them. I've sent letters to all of the same schools except oklahoma, ohio state, and tulane (didnt apply to ok and oh) and so far i haven't had an interview come out of it, but did get acknowledgements that they look at them.

I think it depends. If you're just listing and explaining updates then you should keep it on one page. If you're like me, where my update letters would often take on the character of interest letters, I'd give yourself a little extra room. My update/interest letters were all about 1.25 pages, and I think they were all pretty successful. Also, if you put a nice heading at the top in traditional letter format, the body of your message often doesn't start until 1/4 to halfway down the page.

with all the special fonts and spacing, it's exactly 1 page SINGLE-SPACED. when you say one page, do you mean double or single-spaced?

btw, want to read mine for me? :thumbup:

Okay, I sent updates to all of those schools but NYMC, Buffalo, and Downstate. Anyone know if it's worth sending updates to those 3 schools?

I sent them yesterday via email and got confirmation from Loyola, Toledo, and SLU that the updates were added to my file.

Are you guys emailing or snail mailing your updates?

I am e-mailing and addressing the admcom as a whole. I find this to be much more direct.

I do thing like thank you notes via snail mail.
